Lefkara was awarded by the world tourism organisation in the presence of the prime minister of Spain, ministers, officials of the global tourism industry.
The village’s proposal was worthwhile, documented, studied and therefore won the award. Great thanks is given to everyone who supported the effort; honorary for Cyprus, and for our historic municipality.
The website of the initiative https://www.unwto.org/tourism-villages/en/villages/has been updated with a new section that includes all the villages recognised as ‘Best Tourism Villages by UNWTO’. This information is currently under edition and it will also be available in French and Spanish soon.
